Description 

On the left side of the MBA Buttress are two boulder pinnacles. This highball boulder problem takes the 25' high one on the left that sits directly below and in front of "Cliff Notes". Boulder up the arete on the south side of this pinnacle. The crux comes about two-thirds of the way up and involves a committing smear on the arete to support a long reach for a positive sloper edge. Falling is not an option - you'll wind up in Golden. A top-rope of sorts can be rigged off the anchors on "Spike", but if you fall around either side of the pinnacle you'll pendulum into the wall.


Protection 

Strong faith in Jesus.

This is quite fun, even if you don't have the necessary protection Alan listed above. A pad might be a better idea.

Uhmmmm.....exactly what is a "positive sloper"? Is that like military intelligence?

This is certainly a fun little climb. There is a little notch on top that holds the rope perfect for a top rope off of the bolts above.
